|Bio and Links|
FindAGrave, as I understand it, is a graves registration database. That means that memorials listed as 'Burial Unknown' should not be on the site longer than 30 days past D.O.D. The site isn't called 'Find the Name of a Deceased Person.' It seems that some are confused about these things. If you are one of those, see the FAQ's. |
If I have made a demonstrable error of fact on any of my postings, please let me know in order that I may correct it. As many of the stones are old, worn, and weathered, I have done my best to interpret the information thereon. If I'm not reasonably sure of the information, I won't post it.
With very few exceptions, all my interment data comes from photographs of the individual's gravestone done by me in the field.
If you see an image you would like a copy of, let me know and I'll be happy to provide one. There is but one proviso however. Any image provided must be for your personal use only and is not to be uploaded to another web site.
On the subject of 'Relationship Links' and 'S.A.C.'s', please read the following carefully. And use the correct procedure!!! I will be happy to make links and corrections.
(((PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
Please double check your suggestions for accuracy before submitting them. Hopefully you will have a reasonably reliable source for the information, AND HAVE PROVIDED IT!!! BTW, most web sites are not sources. For the most part, they contain information somebody uploaded. The source is where the information came from. For example, if someone on a web site claims to quote from the New York Times, the NYT is the source (along with date of publication, edition, page number, etc.), NOT THE WEB PAGE. If it helps, try thinking of this as if you were writing a term paper. (Does either 'MLA' or 'CMS' sound familiar???)
I have been deluged recently with suggestions and requests to make relationship links which simply cannot be possible. When you ask me to link a child to parents who would have been 3 years old at the time of the child's birth, something's very wrong somewhere. Of course, if you wish, I can easily post anything you submit and attach your name to the erroneous information. There is enough bad data on the internet as it is and I really don't want to be adding to the problem. But if you insist... Please keep in mind, just because it's on the internet doesn't make it true.))) Since FindAGrave rules prohibit the use of external links (they can go dead or change over time), I won't create them.
I have 'isolated' the bulk of the 2 preceding paragraphs with ((())) because the current 'Edit' system no longer provides for the submission of documentation and has thus made them irrelevant. It seems that now the addition of any data is more important than the addition of accurate data which has been properly sourced. Previously, when someone submitted an edit, it was via a message which provided a text format for submission of documentation which I could then 'copy and paste' to add the data, along with the documentation, and the name of the member who submitted the information. As it stands now, I would have to message everyone who submits a change with a request for a source and wait for a reply. That reply might never come and the data would automatically be added after 21 days anyway. I.M.O.
Please do not ask for transfers solely for the purpose of adding biographies and making links. If you submit information from a reliable source, a source you have provided, I will add it. Keep in mind you can always create a virtual cemetery.

|Steven||Find A Grave Memorial# 45063628|
You are showing Josiah Bartholomew (1751-1777) as married to his step-mother Phebe Merriman Munson (1720-1799). His actual wife's name was Martha Maltbie (1748-1814). I haven't found her memorial yet, but I'm still looking. I think the confusion is due to his father also being named Josiah Bartholomew (1710-1786), who married Phebe Merriman Munson in 1752, after Josiah Jr's mother (Lydia Harrington) died in 1751. You also show that Josiah had a son Jehiel in 1780, three years after his death. His actual son's name was also Josiah Bartholomew (1775-1819) further confusing things. Jehiel was the son of Josiah Jr's half-brother Isaac (1754-1849). I have notified Peggy Thornton of my findings, so hopefully we can get all of this sorted out soon. Best of luck with your research!

We both had entered Joseph Rouzer. I just deleted mine the only thing I seen different I had added the family stone as well. I put it on your page of Thomas Rouzer. You may wish to rearrange the photos, or even take it off.

You're quite welcome!
|Renee S Carolan Hopper O C||Noted but do not agree when comes to a Veteran|
Interesting and thank you, but as I have recently said to someone whether they are lost at sea, in the air, or otherwise we need to remember all, not a selected few. Ancestry purchased findagrave. Keep in mind headstones, do always show correct information when it comes to records. Noted and the paper issue. Who paid the obit? The person who paid to have it put in. A legal point. If I paid for it to put the information in it is mine and not the newspaper. Noted . Thank you for your service.
|Debbie||RE: Garret Schanck|
I do not know Schanck, my papers all show Schenck even marriage certs as well as birth. I will go through papers and double ck but I have never seen that spelling before. All of Michael's papers refer to Schenck, Michael's son wrote a long letter about when they came from PA, with whom, and who married whom. Michael's personal papers say who is wife is and who her parents were.
Will get back with you-

It appears that he is the grandson of Rachel Hyde Holcombe. Jacob Holcombe (spouse of Rachel) born 1741 and died 1820 based on the Book The Holcombe Genealogy by Jesse Seaver.

|b9britain||Initials in Bio|
"(Does either 'MLA' or 'CMS' sound familiar???)"
And there are more initals on your bio page.
Sorry, but no, they do not sound familiar.
According to how I remember adding initials: The first time the initials are used the words to which they refer are written out followed by the initials in parenthesis; thereafter, just the initials.
So what do they mean?
